  1. Effects of pool size on free-choice selections by Atlantic bottlenosed dolphins at one zoo facility

    Contributor(s):: Shyan, M. R., Merritt, D., Kohlmeier, N. M., Barton, K., Tenge, J.

    Dolphin pool design often derives from the concept that cetaceans are ocean based and ipso facto should live in open, deep, watery spaces. This emotionally appealing rationale is not data driven. Researchers report that in the wild, some populations of Atlantic bottlenosed dolphins Tursiops...

  4. Strandings as indicators of marine mammal biodiversity and human interactions off the coast of North Carolina

    Contributor(s):: Barbie L. Byrd, Aleta A. Hohn, Gretchen N. Lovewell, Karen M. Altman, Susan G. Marco, Ari Friedlaender, Craig A. Harms, William A. McLellan, Kathleen T. Moore, Patricia E. Rosel, Victoria G. Thayer

    The adjacency of 2 marine biogeographic regions off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (NC), and the proximity of the Gulf Stream result in a high biodiversity of species from northern and southern provinces and from coastal and pelagic habitats. We examined spatiotemporal patterns of marine mammal...

  5. The impact of animal welfare advertising on opposition to the Canadian seal hunt and willingness to boycott the Canadian seafood industry

    Contributor(s):: Braunsberger, K.

    The purpose of this research was to measure and compare the initial and carryover effects of a video advertisement developed by an animal welfare organization, namely Harpseals. org. The ad was designed to educate the public about an egregious act against wildlife (i.e., the Canadian seal hunt),...

  6. Human/Animal Communication: Cetacean Roles in Human Therapeutic Situations

    Contributor(s):: M.P. Hindley

    A review of the literature on the relationship between animal and human indicates that whales and dolphins may have a mutually beneficial role to play in human therapeutic situations. Florida researchers have discovered that interaction with dolphins has favourably altered the behaviour of...

  10. Studies on the helminth fauna of Alaska. XXVII. The occurrence of larvae of trichinella spirals in Alaskan mammals

    Contributor(s):: Robert L. Rausch, B. B. Babero, Virginia R. Rausch, Everett L. Schiller

    In 1948 much interest in trichinosis in arctic regions was aroused, particularly by the findings of Thorborg et al. (1948), who investigated serious outbreaks occurring among the Eskimo of West Greenland during 1947. Consequently, with the founding of the Arctic Health Research Center in the...

  11. Canadian Perceptions of Commercial Fisheries Management and Marine Mammal Conservation in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean

    | Contributor(s):: Kellert, Stephen R., Gibbs, James P., Wohlgenant, Timothy J.

    Public attitudes toward the use of fisheries and marine mammals in the northwest Atlantic have played an influential role in recent controversies over management of these resources. A thorough assessment of public sentiment has, however, been lacking. We describe the results of a survey conducted...

  12. "Gift giving" by wild bottle-nose dolphins (Tursiops sp.) to humans at a wild dolphin provisioning program, Tangalooma, Australia

    | Contributor(s):: Holmes, B. J., Neil, D. T.

    Since 1992, wild dolphin provisioning has occurred on a nightly basis at Tangalooma, a resort located on Moreton Island, Australia. Each evening at dusk up to 12 bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops sp.) are provided with fish in a regulated provisioning program. Since July 1998, biologists managing...

  16. Conflict and reconciliation behavior trends of the bottlenose dolphin ( Tursiops truncatus )

    | Contributor(s):: Holobinko, A., Waring, G. H.

    Wild bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) populations display societal structures characterized by numerous and frequent changes in group composition, complex social relationships, and high levels of cooperation, attributes also observed in human and nonhuman primate cultures. Maintaining...

  17. Increased number of whistles of bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus , arising from interaction with people

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Akiyama, J., Ohta, M.

    The acoustic mode is the most reasonable means for social animals such as dolphins to maintain contact in the underwater habitat, and has been developed since they moved to the sea. This study investigates variations in dolphin vocalizations under the following conditions in a captive...

  18. Latitudinal variation in diet and patterns of human interaction in the marine otter

    | Contributor(s):: Mangel, J. C., Whitty, T., Medina-Vogel, G., Alfaro-Shigueto, J., Caceres, C., Godley, B. J.

    The marine otter (Lontra felina) inhabits patches of rocky coastline from central Peru to southern Chile and is classified as Endangered by the IUCN. Given the limited information available about the species, we set out to assess marine otter diet with a view to detecting latitudinal differences,...

  19. Behavioural responses of captive common dolphins Delphinus delphis to a 'Swim-with-Dolphin' programme

    | Contributor(s):: Kyngdon, D. J., Minot, E. O., Stafford, K. J.

    We monitored the effects of a `Swim-with-Dolphin' (SWD) programme on the behaviour of three female common dolphins. They were studied from January 1999 to July 1999 at Marineland, Napier, New Zealand. Before, during and after SWD sessions we recorded: (1) the use of a refuge area, (2) the...

  20. Behavioural responses of juvenile steller sea lions to abdominal surgery: developing an assessment of post-operative pain

    | Contributor(s):: Walker, K. A., Horning, M., Mellish, J. A. E., Weary, D. M.

    Marking and tracking of marine mammals is required to gain a better understanding of life history traits; however, some marking procedures used are likely painful. Recent technological advances include intra-abdominally implanted archival telemetry devices for the life-long monitoring of...
